You don't need root access at all. Grab a copy of the irc server on : /irc/servers/irc2.8.21.tar.gz, compile it, create
an ircd.conf file according to the explanations in the doc/INSTALL
file, and execute the ircd program.

If you only want people from your domain connecting, say, *,
you'll want lines such as I:** in your ircd.conf

Good luck :)
